Spam calls are annoying, and annoyingly abundant. But Apple is making a change to the phone app that aims to help with that.
Have you ever tried to make plans or just chat with a group of people over text? It can get confusing and opinions can easily get lost. Instead, try starting a conference call to get everyone on the same page, in the same conversation, and at the same time.
Depending on your mobile carrier, you can have up to five people on your call. To help you out, here’s how to start a conference call on iPhone.
T9 dialing was initially introduced as a means of making text input easier on 3x4 numeric keypads, much like those found on old cell phones. Modern smartphones with their phone number hot-linking and advanced contact lists have all but phased out the need for such things, but to those wishing they could access T9 in the iPhone’s native Phone app: you’re in luck.
T9Dialer is a somewhat new jailbreak tweak released by iOS developer Jordan Koch (eskimo_dev) that ports full T9 functionality to the numeric keypad in the iPhone’s native Phone app.
It’s no secret that the iPhone’s inbound call interface is
an intrusive pain in the butt. Not only does it take up the entire display, but
you can’t do away with it without first declining the phone call. Obvious much?
CallBar by Elias Limneos has long enjoyed being the premier solution to Apple’s horrendous inbound call interface on jailbroken handsets, but a new jailbreak tweak release dubbed Vocito by iOS developer Antique aims to increase the competition in this sector by introducing a minimalist alternative to CallBar.
Unlike some of the earliest cell phones that made it to the
public market, the iPhone can do so much more than just make and receive phone
calls. With that in mind, the native Phone app is often overlooked in regards
to personal customization and features.
To those who feel the same way, a new free jailbreak tweak called NPF by iOS developer Easy-Z brings at least some form of customization to the iPhone’s Phone app. With it, you’ll be able to customize the shape and size of the keypad buttons to give them a new look and feel, as shown above.
Have you ever wanted to record your inbound and outbound
phone calls from your iPhone? If so, then you’re not alone; in fact, this is
quite possibly one of the most highly-requested features that Apple hasn’t
natively implemented in the iPhone’s calling interface.
While a slightly convoluted process exists that may or may not work depending on your carrier, those with jailbroken handsets can make this process a whole lot easier by installing one of two recently-released jailbreak tweaks dubbed Call Recorder X+ (iOS 12) and Super Recorder X+ (iOS 12) by iOS developer hacx.
If you have a jailbroken iPhone running iOS 12, then you should probably add Elias Limneos’ new CallBar XS jailbreak tweak to your wish list.
Just like its predecessor, CallBar XS streamlines the phone-centric functionality of your iPhone by incorporating a less intrusive incoming and outgoing phone call interface. In short, it replaces iOS’ full-screen call interface with one that’s hardly any larger than a standard notification banner, and it does so without sacrificing any functionality.
Call waiting; one of those convenient phone services that
was introduced decades ago on land lines. It lets you answer an incoming call
while you’re currently on another call. It can be a handy feature so that you
can take calls without your line being tied up.
However, call waiting can also be a nuisance. If you’re
already on an important call and don’t want to be bothered with others trying
to reach you, you may not want this feature enabled. So, here’s how to turn off
Call Waiting on iPhone.
So, you blocked a number or a contact and now you want to take it back. It happens once in a while but rest assured, you can have them back to being able to call you again in no time.
Here’s how to unblock a caller on iPhone and iPad.
